Welcome to the Administrative Assistance reading room. You can request assistance from administrators for handling a variety of problems here and alert them about problems which may require special actions not normally used during regular content editing. Please be patient as administrators are often quite busy with either their own projects or trying to perform general maintenance and cleanup.

You can deal with most vandalism yourself: fix it, then warn the user. If there is repeated vandalism by one user, lots of vandalism on a single page, or vandalism from many users, tell an admin here, or in #wikibooks (say !admin to get attention).

For more general questions and assistance that doesn't require an administrator, please use the Assistance Reading Room.

Poem of Sidi Boushaki

@Leaderboard, QuiteUnusual: this should definitely be deleted as out of scope (or any number of reasons). Its been created by a couple of socks of an LTA called User:Boushaki10; the User:Lofton05 account has been locked, and I have requested that the User:15safia to be also locked at Meta. It links on youtube to some teachings in Arabic, so obviously out of scope. I thought I'd better explain before deletion. --Jules (Mrjulesd) 16:27, 20 April 2021 (UTC)[]

Thanks, there are multiple other accounts (sleepers in the main) and one new one that is socking to block evade. So I have blocked them all and nuked the book. QuiteUnusual (discusscontribs) 17:29, 20 April 2021 (UTC)[]
Oh, thanks for pointing it out; I had no clue they were actually socking. Leaderboard (discusscontribs) 18:17, 20 April 2021 (UTC)[]
